Minor League Monday - Coaching Staff, 1990 CMC.
Pitching coach Dick Egan starts things off on card 172. Egan's Major League career spanned four seasons, from 1963-1967 with the Tigers, Angels, and Dodgers. 1967 would be the only season he did not spend time in the minors. His minor league career started in 1957 and ended after the 1969 season. After his retirement as a player, Dick moved into scouting. He spent the 1988 and 1989 seasons as the bullpen coach for the Rangers. Judging by the football Egan is holding, some of Texas' pitching coach Tom House's training techniques rubbed off on him during his time in Arlington. Texas must have liked Dick's work with the young players in their system. He would be named manager of the Rookie League Butte Copper Kings for the 1991 season.
